Managing UMR Phase 5 With Trade Optimization and Margin Reduction


Capitolis global head of sales Ben Tobin joined a panel of experts at TradeTech FX US to focus on Uncleared Margin Rules (UMR). He discussed why institutions should look beyond pure preparedness to optimizing and reducing the amount of margin they must exchange.

The panel examined how the September 2021 Phase 5 of UMR will impact FX prime brokerage, particularly with regards to operational costs and market access. Panelists discussed who and what is in scope as AANA thresholds drop, why pre-and post-trade optimization will become more important, and how technology can help drive efficiencies across trading and operations to maximize financial resources.
